The Emirates side, who registered a shock 2-0 Prem defeat away at Brentford, are thought to be keen to strengthen their shot-stopper options.
The club’s number one keeper Bernd Leno, 29, endured some tough moments against the Bees who were making their Premier League debut after a 75-year spell out of the top-flight.
These include being beaten at his near post for Brentford’s opener although the ball went through Callum Chambers’ legs.
Arsenal, who face a tough clash with Chelsea next, are reported to have asked for information about Ajax ace Onana.
It is claimed the stopper, 25, who is serving a nine-month ban from football for a doping violation, is keen to call time on his career with the Dutch champions.
The player, who was banned in February this year, kept 83 clean sheets in 204 Ajax appearances and has a contract that runs out in June 2022.

And reports claim the stopper will be available to play for Ajax from 3 November and will be allowed to train with the club from September.
Corriere dello Sport suggests Inter Milan were thought to be close to making the player a new Nerazzurri member.
It is thought the Cameroon ace was being lined up as a potential replacement for Samir Handovic.
However, FC Inter News via Sport Witness claims there is not yet a closed deal in place.
And it is thought that Mikel Arteta’s side may still be in the running for the Cameroon ace who could cost around £7.7million with Ajax reportedly keen not to lose him for free next summer.

Arsenal, who take on Man City in the league after hosting Chelsea, are thought to see Onana as a cheaper alternative to summer target Aaron Ramsdale.
And SunSport reports the club’s much-speculated chase of Ramsdale, 23, has collapsed due to Sheffield United's £35million asking price for the keeper.
The former England Under-21 ace kept 5 clean sheets in 38 top-flight appearances for the Blades who were relegated to the Championship last season.
And Sheffield boss Slavisa Jokanovic says the Stoke-born stopper is not for sale despite him being linked with Arsenal.
